My Summary

Ofsted Registered

About Me

Ofsted Good Provider Logo

Hello I'm Alice Working as a childminder for six years.
Before that I trained and qualified as a nursery nurse NNEB and have over 20 years experience working as a nanny with children aged 0 to 14 years. I have been registered as a childminder with Ofsted for over six years and have a GOOD rating.

I am a mother with a happy 10 year old daughter in a primary school in Muswell Hill.

We have a lovely house with a large indoor area and large garden so lots of space inside and out.
I have toys and activities for all ages of children including outdoor toys.

I give the children in my care what I give my daughter to eat organic meat and plenty of organic fruit and vegetables whenever possible.

I enjoy looking after a small group of children no more that 3/4 so I can give the children the time and attention they all need as part of a group and as individuals.

I am a warm, honest, fun and outgoing person who will provide a caring, loving, safe, secure, non smoking home with two very gentle friendly Maine coon cats.
A nourishing environment that I will use to encourage all children in my care to develop to their full potential through play, positive encouragement, praise, an abundance of love with healthy routines and consistency.

My Experience

I have successfully completed training in paediatric first aid and have had a enhanced DSB check. I have insurance and appropriate car insurance.
Full clean driving licence.
I have a NNEB Diploma in nursery nursing, with 20 years experience as a nanny with children aged 0 to 15 years.
Then after the birth of my daughter When she turned 3 I've worked as a childminder for over six years.

Alice looked after my little girl from nine months old to just over two. She helped her learn to eat, walk and talk. She gave cuddles and she nourished her with home cooked meals which were mainly organic. Alice is a cut above any childminder I came across before her. I loved her energy and that the kids were playing and learning, singing and dancing all the time. They went for walks, they went for playgroups and they rested in her home. I would recommend alice to anyone.

My daughter started with Alice when she was 10 months and I had to return to work. I initially felt unsure with the nursery route and met a few childminders. On meeting Alice I knew she was the one for us. Right from day one she was unbelievably loving towards my baby girl, treating her like her own and feeding her nourishing food whilst giving her all her love and bags full of energy. Alice makes every day special, loving, fun, cosy and secure with honesty and care. He house is spacious and garden incredible. Alice takes the kids out about which I really love so that they get a varied day. I will be so sad when we leave but will no doubt be sending my second baby to Alice as soon as I can!

Alice looked after my daughter Ciara for a year until we moved out of the area . I was very nervous about leaving her with anyone Within three days Ciara was putting her hands out for Alice ,Alice β€˜s house is an amazing space and her garden is child friendly and very big .

Our son was looked after by Alice for just a short time as we ended up moving away, but we are so glad our first experience of a childminder was with her! On meeting Alice, we knew instantly that we wanted her to look after our son - she is warm, kind and completely has your child's best interests at heart - making sure they feel loved and safe and are able to have lots of play time and feel content. Alice kept us reassured, particularly in the early days, that he was absolutely fine - playing with his friends, a wealth of toys, indoors and out. We were well informed about his eating and drinking - lots of homemade food, sleeping - going down in cot and in pram, nappies etc and we felt very happy leaving him in her safe hands - we are only sorry we had to leave!

Alice was the chilminder to my son for 6 months, but unfortunately we have to move in a different areaπŸ˜žπŸ™
What I can say about Alice, without any hesitation, that she was excellent not only at looking after my son but in the way he has devolped in the short time he has spent with her, he comes home happy and contented and has learnt many things whilst in Alice's care, from learning basics like how to use paint brushs and pens to an improvement in how he wants to feed himself and it is a joy to see him learn the small basic things when he is in her care , he has been toilet-trained, learnt to dress/undress himself and is saying new words every day.
Alice also cooks him great and tasty fresh home cooked meals!! but most importantly is the way she shows a lot of LOVE and care to the children in her care which, for me is very important.
I would highly recommend Alice as a childminder - she is kind, patient and always happy to discuss any needs/concerns as soon as they arise with diplomacy and genuine concern. Definitely one of the best childminders I've encountered. I felt I could trust her at once and now consider her to be a friend.
We will miss you a lot Alice πŸ˜πŸ˜˜πŸ€—
